Late registration is an option for people who miss the regular registration deadline. It is available starting the day after the close of regular registration, up until noon the day BEFORE election day, and must be done at the county election office (or at the location designated by the election administrator), not at a polling place. Late registration is closed from noon to 5 p.m. on the day before the election. Although you can drop off a registration card during this time, you will not receive your ballot unless you return to the election office on Election Day. If you wish to avoid the possibility of long lines, register by the close of regular registration or as soon as possible after the start of the late registration period.
